    Great to see it blooming. I would have to see the plant to say if it is a good thing or a bad thing.

    I have had several orchids bloom then promptly die. As a last ditch effort to pass on its genes a plant will bloom. Death bloom if you will. You said this plant has been neglected for the past 6 months? Might want to keep an eye on it and baby it if you decide to keep the blooms.

    I had a single fan Paph rothchildianum bloom. I thought it was a great thing. I was advised to cut the spike,. the plant was too small and it was blooming as a death bloom. The plant promptly died after blooming. And if you know anythign about orchids that is not a cheap plant. I got it free as a NoID. Now of course it is lost.

    Good luck with your talengensis.

    Oooh, that should be some great pollen. I hope you find a nice female to cross with!

    I've heard of three or four male ventricosas blooming in the past few days. Now you male talangensis is blooming... I wonder if my N. ventricosa x talangensis is a female...

    Is it difficult to get neps to bloom? Congrats! Hope you find a nice mate, since all these males are synchronized, the females must be synchronized with the males and each other, so give it a bit and you may find some.

    im pterry sure its ok . but i too have experienced the death bloom . LOL
    hurts so good .

    its producing a new pitcher too , the neglect is only by not being able to flush with rain water each day like i used too, its in a highland-ish terrarium with a misting system, and lots of t-5 lighting. but if does die . its all your fault for mentioning the dreaded DEATH BLOOM !!!LOL
    .
    Just Kidding , and thanks for the advise I will try and give a bit more attiention.

    It would be great if you could find a female talangensis. I'd love to grow a seed-grown talangensis.

    Well you didn't say that was the kind of neglect your giving it. ;-). I use tap on mine so they mist be really neglected. Lol all are doing well I am glad it's blooming and I do not believe it is a death bloom anymore since you clearified neglect.

    Way to go. Awesome job and I am with Dex. Would love a seed grown talengensis.
